    They announced this release a while back, but this is the first mention of any specific features. Needless to say, I'm all over this one.

    Sounds like they're going to use the elements of the region 2 Eureka DVD, which are amazing.

    Can't wait! This was announced to be in the works a while ago, but it's great to finally get a timeframe. However, the end of this year is extremely tough on the ol' wallet...
